Sozai for Lease in the Sunset

Almost exactly two years after it opened, Sozai is looking for a new operator. The Japanese restaurant and sake lounge was ahead of the izakaya curve, opening its doors just before O Izakaya and paving the way for spots like Deep Izakaya, Otoro, and the upcoming Nombe. If you want to get into the izakaya game too, the price of entry is just $20,000 down and $4,300 a month in rent.
